2017 Mercedes-Benz G350 Professional Is The Rugged Version Of The G-Class

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz G350 Professional is replacing the G300 CDI, and is essentially the updated version of the G-Wagen Professional. It’s the rugged and utilitarian version of the G-Class minus the leather and Alcantara-lined interior or the AMG engines. The exterior of the G350 Professional is as rugged as it comes. Its all-black color scheme takes that ruggedness a notch higher, along with the 16-inch wheels with all-terrain tires. You can choose from a wide variety of colors aside from black.

LAPV Version of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class Spied

Can military vehicles be any cooler than this? Recent spy shots revealed that Mercedes-Benz is working on a new version of its G-Class-based Light Armored Patrol Vehicle, or the LAPV.
